Hard to know what to make of Kolli, as most of his games were under Ainsworth where he came on to replace a number 9 and then we just hoofed it at him aimlessly. That's clearly not his game.

The last game I think before he disappeared injured he put in an amazing cross for a goal which is the only real contribution I remember him making, other than straight into the top ten best QPR haircuts.

Hope he comes good but we really can't go into another season with Dykes, Kolli and Armstrong up front.

James a bit of a forgotten band but in the Manchester / rave early 90s era when they were still relatively unknown they were superb live. Saw them a few times back then, some of the best gigs I’ve been to, and great T-shirts too.

This is a good clip

Roberto Baggio (almost)

Trevor Francis was a good one back then. We cleaned up on “past-it” England players for a while and it paid off (Reid, Hodge, Francis, Wilkins, Sansom)

Ha - to be fair I was living (briefly) in the real Queens Park when I made my login - must be 20 years ago now… Jesus. On Harvist Road even which I since found out was one of our early grounds.

The Salusbury is a great place, used to sit in there listening to the reggae all the time

The Queens Park pub I really miss is The Corrib. Loved it in there. A real shame that got shut down, it was a proper place in the old days, you never quite knew which set of reprobates were going to be hiring the function room on any given night!

Eze for England!
at 22:06 6 Jun 2024

Congratulations to Eze. Delighted for him. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloke.

This reminds me of when Paul Parker played in Italia 90 and all the QPR fans knew he’d be brilliant, or when Crouch got in playing in 2004. Feel like a proud Dad

The WIV is still going but every time I’ve been in there recently it feels like The Masons did, massive lovely old building with nobody in it. I fear for it.

The one that is going gangbusters is The Island aka The Buccaneer from the old days. Gone from a flat roof pub in all but architecture to rammed out day in day out. Known locally as the raver’s graveyard due to the preponderance of knackered old parents who clearly enjoyed the 90s and now settling down (I include myself in this number)

The Chamberlayne and the Whippet (old Greyhound) seem healthy as well.

And Maggie’s Bar for the old school Irish is still one of my favourites

I’ll miss The Masons though, hope someone takes it on but the location screams “cheap new build flats”

Eze for England!
at 21:10 3 Jun 2024

Thought Eze did enough to get more of the country behind him and show what he can do. Only player in that first half who didn’t do the usual England thing and take three touches and play the easy ball. He should be pleased with that.

Literally just heard the closest pub to me is closing its doors - The Mason’s Arms in Kensal Green.

Gutted, spent many a great time in there although you could tell it was coming, been totally empty for large parts of the week for years.

They lost the big garden in some sort of property dispute with London Underground a while back and never been the same since.

A lot of history gone though if it disappears, must have been a boozer for a good 150 years

There’s a thriving load of independent garages for the Alphard / ElGrand so find a local one and parts etc not a problem - a lot of parts are shared with other Nissans and Toyotas as well anyway. I’d highly recommend looking at them as an option they’re brilliant cars and a real bargain, you can get good ones for 6k.

Insurance as an import doesn’t seem to be an issue. Lots of places will import one for you if you give them a budget and a spec and then do all the bits that need doing (translate the radio, seal it for rust which the Japanese don’t do)

Only caveat is they’re in a bit of a grey area with ULEZ, they’re fine for now but as they don’t have an official EU emissions number who knows if that may change one day.

Couple of leftfield ones:

I recently bought an old school Volvo V70 with the “family pack” from 2003 which means it has the rear facing seats in the boot and in-built booster seats. The kids and their mates love it and if you can find a well-looked after one the Volvos from that era will go on forever. One of the best car buys I’ve ever made: bulletproof, amazing stereo, super comfortable seats, lovely to drive, massive boot. I’m planning to keep it going until they can use it as their first car. Stick a roof box on as well and you could start a removals company.

Also look at imported Japanese Nissan Elgrands. Not great on fuel as they have the V6 from the Nissan Skiyline but they’re brilliant cars and there’s a thriving setup of enthusiasts in the UK so easy to get parts etc. The kind of car you get picked up in the VIP section in Asia. Easy to turn into a camper as well.

A great read that.

I disagree on Sinclair though, he clearly terrifies high quality defences already, his attitude is good and he does remind me of when Sir Les was rubbish for years and then was suddenly amazing.

Coaching him into the right choices on the pitch shouldn’t be beyond our management team and I think he’s potentially a big player

The same geniuses that promised that leaving the EU would solve immigration and make things better for everyone are now proposing to bring back national service.

I would gently argue that it’s another pie in the sky piece of absolute bullshit from the same vested interests that sounds good in theory and has literally no chance of happening.

100% this.

He was pony and having him in central defence for all that time coincided with our slide into Div 1 from which we’ve never really recovered.

OK it wasn’t entirely his fault but I mainly blame him

Agreed - giving ex first team players a respectful goodbye and the chance to let them say goodbye is a small but meaningful sign we have moved forward.

So many great players fked off without a by your leave in the recent past

I thought Hull looked like the best team we played this season.

Certainly not a side in need of a new manager. Surprised they didn’t make the play-offs, and it looks like the owner was as well.
